You should install a second ground rod at least six feet away from the first. If there is metal piping in the house you bond that too. If the well line is metal, bond that where it enters the house.

If the water pipe coming in is plastic then you need to drive two rods at least 6' apart. If the pipe inside the house is metal then you need to bond the piping.

At the well the equipment grounding conductor of the circuit feeding the pump should be used to bond the casing at the well.
